is a social networking site similar to Myspace. In order to use the site’s features, you must sign up, which is free. Once you have done this, you can fill in information about yourself for your profile and give yourself a profile picture. You can also search for people you know and add them to your friends list. Once they are on your list, you can leave messages in their inbox, write on their "wall" and tag them in photographs.
Facebook gives users the chance to interact with friends and share photos. You can also join networks and groups. Once you join a network, all the people in that network can view your profile, but you can choose to limit it to just people on your friends list if you wish.
When you log into Facebook, you are presented with a mini news feed that gives you a variety of updates on your friends. You can read their status, see what they have written on other friends’ walls, view any pictures they have added and see results of quizzes they have taken. When a friend updates a status, you can leave a comment related to that status and be alerted when your friend or friends of your friend reply to your comment.
Many bands and actors have pages on Facebook. You can become a fan of the band or actor to gain access to updates and events related to them. When you or a friend becomes a fan of something, it will show up in the news feed, giving others a chance to join if they wish.
Facebook is a great site for keeping in touch with friends and family. If you are concerned about your privacy, then you can easily make sections of your profile private, such as your photographs and your relationship status. You can also choose to keep what you write on friends’ walls private so that it will not show up in the news feed.
